In Topic: "New" Moebius Trailer

26 May 2014 - 06:14 AM

I agree there, it might be fairly easy to scratch build...but that's the case for most box trailers and lots of other trailers too...but if you want a full detail trailer with correct suspension, full interior, working rear door and such a model kit is always better...not to mention easier than to scratch build...as long as it's done right that is.

But as I mentioned a long time ago, if this kit is just going to be the Great Dane reefer with smooth sides, that is very easy to build. Use the roof, floor, suspension, front, and back from the reefer kit, and add smooth plastic sides.


In Topic: Wheelbase on the Moebius Lonestar?

When you spec a brand new truck from a manufacturer, the wheelbase will be measured from the center of the steer axle to half way between the tandem axles. This is how it is done in the US at least, I know some other countries are different.

Looks great! What are you using for the air cleaners?


In Topic: Paint Strippers - What to Use?

13 May 2014 - 10:24 AM

I've used Easy Off oven cleaner in the past. I sprayed the cab and put it in a sealable bag for a few hours. Every couple hours I gave it a scrub with a brush and sprayed some more on. The paint was completely gone by the end of the day.

That grill looks really nice also likeing the color scheme.

Is that Cat the kit engine ?

 

 

Nice job on modifications. Is the valve cover scratch-built or aftermarket item? Looks great. Are you making it the "E" version?

 

Thanks guys! The engine is from the kit and then modified by me. I am going for a C16, though I know it is not perfect. I scratch-built the valve cover, moved the air compressor, moved the turbo, and changed the timing gear cover on the front a little. I'm hoping once it is in the truck it will look alright.
